TMI sport seats and LED dash lights
#1
Heads up to 71-73 owners. I ordered TMI front sport seat upholstery and seat foam for my 72 Mach1. I also ordered LED dash lights from Mustang Project

The LED lights are great except do not order the bulbs for the 3 gauges in the center console - they are incorrect. I can see my speedo and tac at night. I replaced the bulb that is in the Automatic shifter selector. Not much improvement there though - but the dash lights look so good now I'm still a happy camper. I also replaced the bulb for heater control lettering and that it brighter also. These bulbs were supposed to be for the three guages but they can in handy anyway.

Craftsman Upholstery in Fairfax VA put the seats together - they look and feel fantastic. It's like having the 2004 Mach1 seats in a 1972 Mach1. Now the question is - do I sell the original Mach1 upholstery and seat foam which is in pretty good shape. I have had this car 29 years so keeping it in case I sell the car really isn't an issue.

Sweet!!

Forgive me, but which colors are the seat upholstery? Is it 'Black/Gray?' (the color looks a little washed out to me if it is)

I was thinking about getting the LED lights for the instruments as well - now I'm hooked... your gauges look awesome!

Looks great! I love the two tone upholstery! My seats are black on black.

The led kits leave lots to be desired.

i'll give some tips

don't change the bulbs for the turn signals indicators to leds, the leds are way too bright and the green light for the indicators becomes blinding at night.

don't change the bulb for the brake warning light, my led bulb and my brake malfunction switch in the prop block did not get along and the led would flicker and do all kinds of crazy things. a regular bulb worked fine no issues and was active during engine start up as normal.

yes - I only replaced the bulbs for the speedo and tac and none of the idiots lights. That isn't an actual picture of my instruments - it's off the Mustang Project website. Mine are not that bright but it is a big improvement. The seats are black and grey and I think the flash washed out the picture some.

Are those 6x9 speakers in the door? It was a trick getting them to fit.

The speakers are 4x6 and I bought them on Ebay but I cannot remember what brand but they were pretty cheap and the sound is okay but not much bass.

The LED light bulbs are awesome but make sure you know the proper installation of this kind of light bulb. I have installed one and it’s really great. I think most people who have cars use LED light bulbs.

can i ask you guys a question??... When you say LED LIGHT BULBS it means you just change the bulbs or you make changes to the circuit in some part too??... I thought the LED technology worked different than the incandescent one...

I have the same problem, my dash turns invisible at night and if i can solve it just changing the bulbs please tell me where i can get them!...

Thanks!
